Anyone out there loading equivalent to the Brit 38/200 load.  Have A2, A5, Red Dot and Unique available.

I loaded some up in 2019 using 3.3 gr of Clays and a 125 gr rnfp for a Police Positive and a S&W Victory. Not sure how that compares with the British load.

I load it for a 200gr round - duplicating the issue load - using it, the Enfield/Webley/S&W British-issue revolvers shoot to point of aim.

Great read: https://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?241578-Fun-with-a-Webley-Mark-IV-38-200-AKA-38-S-amp-W-AKA-380-Rimmed

FWIW I run an Accurate 36-190t over 3 grains of Unique, in a Webley MK IV.  Does a dandy job on armydillers.
